Sony MDR-X10 Headphones Review: So Much Bass That Even I Feel Old

Android Police
26 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Let's not beat around the bush: the Sony MDR-X10's are ridiculously overwrought, flashy, made out of plastic, and endorsed by Simon Cowell. The Beats market is squarely in Sony's crosshairs with this headphone. Even the price point ($300 - street and MSRP) matches up with Dr.

  • Summary: These are some great cans, but they do have some faults. The lows and the highs are very good, but the middles tends to fade out. I would say that these cans would sound best with some sort of electronic, techno, hip-hop, or pop. Ive also noticed that they work well with country as well as rock.
  • Pros: Great lows and highs, sound quality, comfortable, portable
  • Cons: Middle fades out a bit, scratches easily

  • Summary: Build Quality & Design The build quality on these isn't so good in the long run, the entire headphone is mostly constructed out of plastic the only metal part on these cans would be the earcups, when it's held in the hands the headphones do feel a bit flimsy and light; because of this they gave me a...
  • Pros: very comfortable, great sounding bass, and great design (somewhat)
  • Cons: bad treble range, build quality isn't so good, ears will get sweaty and hot for a short period of time

  • Summary: I'll come back and put a full review up, suffice to say these have a lot of bass, coming from the XBA line. They are by far the neatest looking cans that Sony's released, but fragile indeed, as the cups scratch easily.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Punchy and tight bass
  • Cons: Scratches easily, Veiled Mids and Trebles due to sheer amount of bass

Review: Sony MDR-X10 Headphones

Wired
6 November 2012
  • Excerpt: The concept of “personal music” has become so embedded in modern culture that we no longer even entertain the idea of not pocketing our music and piping it directly into our brains.
  • Pros: Ear pads are plush and comfy. Deep, rich, dynamic sound. Comes with two replaceable flat cords and a 1/4-inch plug for an audiophile sound system. They fold up for portability. High-quality protective case.
  • Cons: Price is steep. Headband could use a little more padding at the top of the head. Tough to simultaneously wear glasses.

Sony X Headphones (MDR-X10)

PC Magazine
1 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The Simon Cowell-endorsed Sony X Headphones are a flashy, powerful, bass-lover's delight—but they're also overpriced.
  • Pros: Quality audio performance designed for modern pop mixes. Very secure fit with highly adjustable headband. Removable cable. Comes with two cables—one with iPhone controls.
  • Cons: Overpriced. Highly sculpted frequency response is not for audiophiles. Can become uncomfortable over long listening periods.
